Lobster Roll Udi's Gluten Free Style

Thanks to Udi’s Gluten Free Hamburger and Hot Dog buns, I am happy to bid farewell to those disappointing days of lone hamburgers served on lettuce. No more ‘hold the bun’ orders at my house!

I love to cook and am at my happiest when I have an entire day in my kitchen to create gluten free recipes from scratch and serve delicious meals to my family and close friends. This past holiday weekend was no exception when my sister, 20-month old niece and brother-in-law, who all live in Boston, were in town to celebrate my mother’s birthday.

Whenever my brother-in-law visits he is always shocked by the lack of quality seafood available in Colorado (a topic I readily debate with him). So when the doorbell rang this past Saturday, I was greeted by 15 pounds of freshly flown-in lobster and knew that our day would be similar to the Food Network’s TV show “Throwdown with Bobby Flay.”  It was lobster roll time and I was ready to put Udi’s Gluten Free Hot Dog Buns up against its gluten-filled enemy that my brother-in-law had already claimed victorious.

Armed with a package of Udi’s Gluten Free Hot Dog Buns, I was confident these little morsels would reign supreme. However, when you first see these buns, your initial temptation is to pull them apart and toast ‘em up. But behold, when you do this all of the ingredients fall out and you are left with nothing.

Try this trick:

                1 Udi’s Gluten Free Hot Dog Bun

                Melted butter or margarine

                Brush the outside of the bun with the melted butter and warm in the oven for about 2 minutes                until slightly golden brown

                Gently open the bun, slightly so it looks like a boat or a vessel

                Scoop in your lobster roll contents and enjoy.

Once we all sat down, I immediately noticed that my sister and brother-in-law’s gluten-filled buns were falling apart and they were having trouble keeping the lobster inside their rolls. That was definitely not the case for my mother and father who also eat gluten-free. Everyone agreed that the flavor and texture of the Udi’s bun was even better than their gluten-filled bun.

Long live the gluten free buns!

I love how versatile our hot dog buns are and would love to hear from you and what you plan to create or any cooking tips for our new buns. Happy Udi-Q! – HC
